Having the opportunity to live and study in a different country is so much more enriching and fulfilling than visiting and seeing the top tourist attractions. It give you the chance to really submerge yourself in the culture and embrace the different customs you're exposed to.

Why Study In Bangalore (Bengaluru)?

The Bangalore (Bengaluru) program provides the extraordinary opportunity to study Indian culture, sociology, and global issues and while volunteering in the local community with fellow students who are interested in contributing and making a difference in their society. You will be studying in one of the most prestigious and beautiful campuses in India and will gain personal exposure to the social issues of rural life. Bangalore is an ideal place to examine global issues due to its location in India’s Silicon Valley, as cultures meet in the transformation of traditional Indian society into a fast-paced hybrid of East-West life.

USAC students are integrated into the college atmosphere and have many opportunities to experience the culture, learn about the country, and make friends. Volunteer opportunities are available as well as college sports, clubs, and excursions to local towns and historical temples. Semester or yearlong students are required to enroll in the 1-credit Service Learning during their first semester in India and we strongly encourage summer students to do the same. You may take the program-organized Indian Cuisine course or workshop to gain even more knowledge of the local culture and we strongly recommend participating in the Optional Tours to Northern or Southern India. USAC students are also paired with Indian “buddies” to help orient them to the university and surrounding areas.

In addition to a semester or yearlong program, USAC also offers summer sessions. The summer Bangalore program offers one 4-week session (Session I) and one 5-week session (Session II); you many participate in either one or both for a 9-week session.
